Boston College practices with ProTech

Boston College football builds a safer environment for its players with SAFR ProTech helmet covers

This spring, Boston College fitted its football team with new helmet covers to help protect their student athletes from head injury. SAFR Sports ProTech helmet covers have a soft outer shell that absorbs impact and has been scientifically proven to reduce force impact by as much as 72%. On-field testing results from a three-year study at a major Pennsylvania university were published in medical journals, including the Journal of Concussion.  

The ProTech is designed to be streamlined, customized to team colors, and can be worn in games, as you can see in the photos above.

Player feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. After a recent practice, BC Eagle offensive lineman Ozzy Trapilo said, “I realized I didn’t have my normal headache when I wore the ProTech.”

In addition to being the only helmet cover technology research to be published in a medical Journal, ProTechs are manufactured in the United States and are permitted for game play.
